Why does Stata crash when I open the Data Editor in Stata for Mac?

Title Stata crashes when opening Data Editor on Mac  
Author Chinh Nguyen, StataCorp

Stata may crash on Mac computers when the Data Editor is opened.

Stata does not support multibyte characters at this time. If your language settings are set to a language such as Japanese or Korean, which use multibyte characters, Stata will crash when the Data Editor is invoked. To avoid this problem, open System Preferences from the Dock, click the International icon, make sure the Language tab is selected, and then set the language to English.
